One Christmas tradition that’s shared by many families far and wide is cutting down and decorating a Christmas tree. You don’t want just any Christmas tree—you want one that you can pick out and is the perfect shape and size for your home. Luckily, you have several options to find your tree this year. Read up on Big John Leyden’s Tree Farm, Lockwood Christmas Tree Farm, and Miller’s Family Farm below.
Big John Leyden’s Tree Farm
Big John Leyden’s Tree Farm is founded on the mission of growing “Real Trees for Real People.” John Leyden, the founder of this tree farm, has always been passionate about growing trees. That’s why he built his tree farm to the successful size it is to encourage locals to buy real, sustainable trees rather than fake, plastic trees. Though Big John has retired, this farm is still open and thriving year-round with 10 varieties of trees to offer to visitors. Stroll through this beautiful farm and handpick your own tree to take home with you.
Lockwood Christmas Tree Farm
Lockwood Christmas Tree Farm prides itself on providing hand-trimmed and beautifully shaped Christmas trees. Whether you choose a Fraser Fir, Blue Spruce, White Spruce, or a Norway Spruce, you won’t be disappointed. If you can stand to wait until the weekend to make the trip to Lockwood Christmas Tree Farm, you’ll be able to enjoy complimentary treats to snack on while you pick out your Christmas tree. Try a home-baked sugar cookie or warm up with a mulled cider or hot chocolate.
Miller’s Family Farm
Miller’s Family Farm offers visitors a truly jolly holiday experience by letting you pick your own tree, which can be up to 14 feet high. One of the helpful staff members will help you cut it down and wrap it up for you to take it home with you. Cutting down your own tree is a fun, hands-on activity offered by Miller’s Family Farm. Still, that’s not the only activity you can get your hands on at this family-owned and -runned farm. Come down to Miller’s Family Farm for a wreath-making class, or Christmas storytelling around a campfire complete with roasted marshmallows. Happy hunting!
